We went to see Big Hero 6 this weekend... no surprise, all four kids loved it.  I loved it too.  Great story, very fun.  A lot more fun than a lot of summer blockbusters I've seen in fact.  Boys are hoping for a DisneyXD series as they want more Baymax...

I'm sort of at a weird spot the YCBs are going on 13 and 11...younger kid does want to see Big Hero 6 but th older doesn't really...we'll probably go to that too.

We checked it out yesterday as well - both kids thought it was amazing.  It's really well done in every aspect.  Good story, great visuals, but also really funny with perfect comedic timing.  They didn't overdo anything, which could have been really easy in a film like this.  Sammy put it on par with Guardians of the Galaxy, so definitely worth checking out.

The kids and us enjoyed it too. Disney seems to be on a role as far as animated movies are concerned. That movie does have a pretty big plot hole though.

Finally got around to seeing Interstellar as the IMAX theater is actually showing it. Great stuff from Nolan as usual.

Not sure how i feel about that but too many John Connor actors in this franchise thus far.

Not really... it looks like they sent Kyle Reese back to save Sarah, but since it already happened, they have a T-800 to fit the first T-800, but there's also another Terminator, not sure if it's a T-1000 or newer version, in the mix.

The idea that it's set in the time period of the first one has me intrigued.
The action looks good and CGI 84 Arnie looked the goods.
Can't wait to see it.
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

So what does Arnold have to play an aged Terminator? Why not just make him one of the inventors of Skynet?  Skynet could then use Arnold's image for the base Terminator model. He would then have to fight against younger versions of himself.

Considering the last two Terminator films ranged from "meh" to "what in the actual hell is this," they might as well reboot the franchise. The trailer made sure to shoehorn in every single reference to T2 as any other franchise reboot would anyway. I'll see it but I think my expectations are going to be really, really low... this is already coming out in a packed year and has to compete against Avengers, Star Wars and what looks to be a great 007 flick.
